Festivals and Fairs in Fairfield County, CT This July
Day one of summer vacation and the score in this house is as follows: kids 1 million, mom 0. While I envisioned three freshly scrubbed, idyllic children working compatibly together on community service projects and requesting additional math assignments, they instead have decided to argue over, well…EVERYTHING. Who gets the pink spoon, who gets the cow mug, who gets to get the yesterday’s mail out the mailbox, and who gets to answer the door. And why, yes, I am writing this before 9am on the very first day of summer vacation. Clearly Operation Get-the-heck-out-of-the-house needs to be kicked into high gear. We will be heading out the door this July to several of the local area fairs and festivals. Perhaps you will as well? If you are interested in a change of locale - we've covered fun summer events in Litchfield County as well as Eastern CT too.
